Today’s post, a cinema engagement shoot, is a bit of a special one. Carla & Aaron are two friends of ours and their first date was at the Little Cinema, a monthly short film showcase we run here in Galway. They are both talented film-makers and cinema buffs! We were so delighted when they announced their engagement! Their wedding is in June this year and they asked us to shoot their photos and video. It’s going to be so emotional!
For their engagement session it only seemed appropriate that we do a cinema theme! Little Cinema is held at the Roisin Dubh though, which although is very cool, it wouldn’t be very cinematic. So my first thought was the IMC Galway – I love their red seats and red lights! The staff and management were very helpful and accommodating in there and let us use one of their screens for the shoot. On the day we were even joined by Kermit and Miss Piggy, as the couple are big Muppets fans (sure who wouldn’t be)!
We then headed off to Town Hall, to shoot some outdoorsy photos also. It’s where the Galway Film Fleadh is held each year and so would play a big role in Carla & Aaron’s history! I am so delighted that I get to play a tiny role in it also with these photos!
